Did some work - talked to some builders (dampproofing a chimneybreast) and an electrician (haha - damn!), failed again to choose any wallpaper at Laura Ashley, hesitated again about what to do with the ugly kitchen cabinets (keep them and paint them white, change the doors, or a combination of both), realised there is no way I will have the expensive furniture I want on my budget and all this "building". Oh, and asked for a quote for sanding a floor on the phone.
Let's think the unthinkable, let's do the undoable, let's prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all.

Ah I'm loving this national record! They are amazing, it's so rare you find a band who are at the very top of the scale both live and on record.

Nah I already had Boxer, it is indeed great. I've just bought "Sad songs for dirty lovers".

thanks Gary...

Lets just say I reached in to a fridge for a beer, grasped what I thought was a stubbie...

That sounds like my kind of morning Nic!

Lovely morning to walk around the dock today. Very happy to see the cormorants and the tufted ducks. Listened to some of Reel to Reel Cacophony by Simple Minds on the ipod, before finishing my walk with Waving Flags, whilst all the time making drastic cuts to my monthly outgoings in my head.

Do you like the Magnetic Fields Spaceman? I think they have a similar ish sound to the National, both have a sort of alt country influence from stuff like Wilco etc.

Trying to make my manager understand that setting out to lie to the new bosses isn't a great idea, when it will me me submitting the report every week.

Gary is out of bed, listening to Adam and Joe on 6, looking forward to kippers for breakfast later, excited about the prospect of that climate change denyer Howard being kicked out of office and replaced by someone who will sign the Kyoto protocol, and looking forward to a day of fun, music and tiddly winks with good friends.
